Mountain Tours offer the flexibility needed when hunting for the spectacular northern lights.IMG_2919

In the comfort of a small group and a 4×4 vehicle we aim for quiet remote places where we can experience the northern lights outside electric light pollution.
On this tour we will go where needed for the best possible conditions to spot the northern lights within the given timeframe of approximately 4 hours.

24.900 IKR.  – Max 4 persons

A hunting game without the blood spill
Experiencing the northern lights is subject to few factors that need to go hand in hand for a successful northern lights hunting. First of all a view of the sky with no or scattered clouds is a must. That’s where local know how of secret places and years of weather observations come in hand. Most important though is a fair forecast of northern lights activity for Iceland that is issued for the next 48 hours. Both of these can be forecasted but being at the right place on the right time takes some know how and a mobile – meaning a small – group.
